storyWell written story with twists and turns that had me glued from start to finish Loved it it is longer than it should be the first 200 pages should be removed i didnt even get where the plot line was goingr who are the main characters i kept confusing the names for a long time the excerpt at the bck Werewolf PTA of the book is misleadingut The Little Demon of three leading female characternly the story Prince From Her Past ofne is written at the excerpt Toward the end the story gets better and concise Wow Wow wow wow This truly was absolutely fantastic I have never read anything by Jo Carnegie before I believe she will now be added to my list Vademecum Per Gli Operatori Nei Beni Culturali Ecclesiastici of favourite authorsI am actually still reeling from all that happened in this story I did not think so much could happen inne small townAlthough the back Chicana Falsa: And Other Stories of Death, Identity, and Oxnard of the cover gives the reader the impression that the Story will be about Vanessa Powell there are actually twother fantastic women that the story is focused aroundFirst there is Mass Murders obviously Vanessa who appears to have it all but is actually starting to find fame and fortune a lonely place to beThen there s Catherine who has taken leave from her high pressure and high profile jobf editor Blessed Are You Who Believed of Soiree magazine but is not really taking to the ladyf leisure lifestyleAnd then there is sweet lovely Fleur A Farmgirl who s Dad s farm is severely struggling to stay afloatThree very different women all with their Archeologia del Sottosuolo Metodologie a Confronto (2 Vol Set) own uniue problems I loved all threef them It was amazing that these three women all lived completely different lifestyles in the same countryside town f Beeversham But although they lead very different lives n the surface maybe they are not so different underneathAlthough Vanessa Catherine and Fleur are the main characters Operación Primicia: el ataque de Montoneros que provocó el golpe de 1976 of Party Games there were so manyther great characters I particularly loved Renatta Vanessa s housekeeper She was actually hilarious with the things she came Why Pandas Do Handstands out with and she had me laughingut loud I thought Jo Carnegie managed to write all these different characters stories really well and not nce was I lost r confused in the story when she switched to Another CharacterThere Are Definitely Some characterThere are definitely some twists and turns in this story and even when you think you ve got it sussed Jo will surprise you yet again I don t want to say too much as I do not want to give anything away The List: el día en que mi vida cambió of what happens in this brilliant story I honestly could not put it down and had to keep reading to findut what was going to happen nextThis is a scandalous story f what goes n in the town Submission With a Stranger of Beeversham and how you never really know what goesn behind closed doors and even when you think you know someone they may not be the person you think they areI definitely definitely will be reading from Jo Carnegie and you definitely should read this I highly recommend I received this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewThe entire time I was reading Party Games I felt like I was watching a guilty pleasure marathon Shadow Commander: The Epic Story of Donald D. Blackburn-Guerrilla Leader and Special Forces Hero of my favorite Lifetime movies I found myself thinking about the characters when I wasn t reading rather insanely wondering what was goingn in Beeversham while I was cooking my family supper The POV alternates though not in a fixed pattern between Vanessa Fleur And Catherine Each Of These Catherine Each f these has uniue challenges and though I couldn t actually identify personally with any f them I very much enjoyed delving into their lives You see a wide range everything from virginal sweetheart Fleur my favorite to ultra bitchy Vanessa and let s not forget the men They run the gamut as well and I couldn t uite decide which I liked best each was juicier than the next If you decide to read this novel find yourself a good British slang website you ll need it Also at the risk The Rat and the Tiger of showing how fashionably challenged I am I didn t recognize manyf the designer references In fact I was a bit frustrated with all the name dropping They re rich I get it I don t need to know they re wearing La Perla underwear The number Pirate Princess of characters introduced in the first few chapters and their lengthy backstories wereverwhelming as well but you will need all Otogi Zoshi: Volume 1 of those backstories eventually and while it s somewhat cheesy and predictable at timesverall it s still a good read A brilliant 45 stars. Given up the high flying career she thought she always wanted and is trying to build a wonderful new life in the country But finding rural bliss is harder than it looksHopes and dreams loves and losses and lots and lots Arcadia of secrets let Jo Carnegie take you behind the scenesf ne very special to. .
